TV talks about the meeting and groundwater governance in Asia.

“Groundwater Governance: A Global Framework for Action – Regional Consultation for Asia and Pacific” was inaugurated in Shijiazhuang city today. Mr. Wang Min, the Vice-Minister of Ministry of Land and Resources of China, and high-level experts and scholars from 17 countries and regions of Asia-Pacific area and international organizations attended this event. The consultation is expected to make preparations for the diagnostic report on global groundwater through case study in both plenary and technical working sessions. As a province in serious lack of water resources, Hebei Province has already delimited areas of groundwater over-exploited and severe over-exploited, and established strict systems of water resources management. And it will take measures to gradually recover the level of groundwater by closing down the homemade wells, prohibiting the exploitation of groundwater, introducing external water sources via South-North Water Transfer Project and recharging the runoff of rain water."
